S&D leader Udo Bullmann’s reaction on the airstrikes on Syria
Following the airstrikes on Syria launched last night by the USA, France and the UK in response to their use of chemical weapons, the S&D Group leader Udo Bullmann declared:
“The use of chemical weapons is completely unacceptable. Now that we have seen military reaction from the USA, France and the UK, we call for all countries and parties involved to de-escalate the situation and give the UN the opportunity to take up its role, to bring an end to the Syrian civil and proxy war and to bring those responsible for crimes against humanity to justice.
The EU should give its full support to political dialogue within Syria in order to create the basis for peace and reconstruction”.
